And bad news becomes worse. Terrell Thomas has suffered an injury to the ACL. What that means is not exactly clear. He’s going to go for more tests.
“Terrell re-injured his ACL. At this point he will most likely undergo an arthroscopic procedure to determine the extent of the injury to the ACL. However, no decision has been made at this point. Terrell is going to consult with Dr. (Arthur) Ting, who performed an allograft reconstruction of the ACL in Septemeber.
We don’t know if it’s a tear. But it can’t be good. He has torn this ACL twice. It’s not in the best shape. If it’s another tear, it might be the end of his career. We’re going to keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
In the meantime, Prince Amukamara has to step up and have a great camp, because he very well could be the starter.
UPDATE: (7:43 EST): Thomas is believed to have, at least, a “partial tear”.
It is believed that Terrell Thomas has at the very least a partial tear of his ACL. Doctors will know more after exploratory surgery. # NYG
